    I use Quickbooks Pro. Set it up in about 1/2 hour, I am no genius on the computer, but have used this for 6 years with no issues.

    I second the Quickbooks Pro vote. If you do not know a lot about accounting, stay away from Peachtree (not personal experience, just second-hand info).
    I also have been using quickbooks for 6 years and am really satisfied. I currently use Quickbooks Pro Contractor edition.

    Ask your accountant which one they prefer then go wit that one. I personally use Quick Books and love the dickiens out of it. Makes life so easy when you keep up with the paperwork.:blob2:

    I would have said qbooks until last month. The morons messed up our order so bad. They sent it to our old address (haven't lived there in over 2 years). That was after we verified our current address, and we have ordered other things thru them and they were shipped here correctly. Long story short we called after waiting 3 weeks. They said we sent to wrong address and that edition is now on backorder. We canceled the sale and then a couple days later it shows up in our mailbox. I still would have paid to have it 3 weeks earlier.

    Find a good accountant (CPA) and use what they recommend.

    OK thanks ... I think im going to stick with quickbooks... I have the 99 version that someone gave me... Do you think there is much difference between the new 2004 version and the 1999 version... I think i will just use the 99

    There is quite a bit of difference between Pro99 and 2004
